I just bought another drive, drive E, to save files in here, in case I get virus so I dont lose my files.

But so far, I have saved so many files in drive C, How do I copy all files to drive E in a easy way?

not one by one folder...

try using a backup tool that allows you to backup your hard drive to another hard drive. the one i used was acronis true image. you can get a free trial when you download it from Download.com

Put the files you want to move in a special folder, then copy the folder by dragging it to the other drive.
Left click and hold it down and select a group of files, then copy them to the other drive.

What brand of hard drive is it. Most HD manufacturers have utilities to copy drives.
